That cassette is from Gans' dat which is from a 1st gen reel, which makes your cassette a 2nd gen cassette.

There is an upgrade that circulates which is directly from the master reel.

Thanks for the info Charlie. I already have the Reynolds version, along with all of the others. I began copying this tape from Gans back in the nineties. I am proud of every copy I circulated from my Nak Dragon.
I still think my dub of 9/19/70 sounds better from my Gans source though.
Great show none the less. I would love to hear you do remasters of all of the Fillmore East/West show!
Your remasters of 2/13/70 and 2/14/70 shows and the April '71 Fillmore East shows are incredible!

Back then I understood that a DAT generation did not count. David offered me either a DAT copy or cassette copy. Since I only had a cassette deck I asked for a tape from his DAT of the Master reel. I considered my copy (rightly or wrongly) as a first generation copy of the master.
At any rate, it sure sounds fine! That is why I wrote on the label "M" for master and "0" for generations since Gans had dubbed it from his DAT of the Master.

Gans copy was not from the master, it was from a first gen reel that was made from the master.

Master Reel -> 1st Gen Reel -> Gans Dat -> Your Cassette.
I love Nak Dragons, but I don't see how adding TWO analog gens can make a tape sound better. It's sonically impossible due to the noise produced on two analog > analog transfers.

Either way, it's a wonderful set and we're lucky to have the recording.
